Product Description

Strong-minded and independent Julia Bernay comes to London to study medicine and become a doctor--a profession that has only just opened up to women. She witnesses a serious accident, and through her quick actions saves the life of an ambitious young barrister named Michael Stephenson.

Coming from a family that long ago lost its money and its respectability, Michael Stephenson has achieved what many would have thought was impossible. Hard work and an aptitude for the law have enabled him to rise above his family's stigma and set him on the path to wealth and recognition. But his well-laid plans are upended when the accident brings Julia into his life.

Michael soon discovers he's met a woman every bit as stubborn and determined to make her mark on the world as he is. Sparks fly--but will they find common ground?

    Julia Bernay may have been taken to an orphanage as a child but she is now an independent young woman who intends to overcome opposition and become a doctor! Julia is an exceptional character in a time when most people do not think women are smart enough to be doctors. Michael Stephenson is a young barrister who loves his sister and wants her to regain her desired social status. Julia plans to be a medical missionary in Africa but learns our mission field may be right where we are. The Heart's Appeal was an excellent book which I recommend to others. The story was complete but I was left with a question at the end. I assume this will be the basis for the next book in the series. I received my copy of The Heart's Appeal from Bethany House Publishers and author Jennifer Delamere. This is my honest opinion.

    "She'd had an air of confidence and independence . . .Her unadorned clothing had only accentuated, rather than minimized how attractive she was."

    A first impression of the woman who had ended up saving Michael Stephenson's life following an unfortunate accident on the Metropolitan Underground Railway. Her quick thinking and calm demeanor would leave him with merely a scar; and a distinct feeling that he would enjoy seeing this woman again, if only to determine why she would ever want to become a doctor.

    Julia Bernay will not be dissuaded from her life's calling, to become a physician and travel to Africa as a medical missionary. First things first; she must pass the entrance exam into the only London institution training female medical students; the London School of Medicine for Women. Latin has managed to be her Achilles heel, so when she visits the young aspiring solicitor whose life she saved on the train, she accepts a gift; a gift of Latin tutelage. If only Michael Stephenson wasn't on the legal team trying to shut down the very program that would ensure her future.

    Life becomes complicated as Julia's faith and determination becomes a curious anomaly to an aspiring lawyer, who has considered sacrificing his own future happiness in order to elevate his family's name into good stead again among London's social elite. Not to mention, that a powerful earl will stop at nothing to thwart Julia's dream. . . . . ."Solvitur ambulando - It is solved by walking."

    What a lovely story; with its impressive mix of history and story line, unique and endearing characters, and a deep, authentic inspirational undercurrent.

    This is a Christian Historical novel and the second in a series. I didn't read the first one but found out that they are linked but not enough to where you can't enjoy this as a stand alone.

    If you like historical fiction, I highly recommend this book. It takes place in London in a time when women are just starting to attend medical school to become doctors. Julia is one of those women. Her dream is to become a physician and travel to Africa to follow her calling.

    A subway accident brings Julia and a lawyer named Michael Stephenson together. Julia helps Michael and then finds out that he is the lawyer whose client is trying to shut down the medical school Julia wants to attend in a libel lawsuit.

    Julia is undeterred! She approaches Michael a few weeks after the accident to see how he is. He, in turn, is so grateful that she helped him that he wants to repay her somehow. Julia asks for his help in Latin and the two begin weekly lessons. However, will Michael and Julia be able to stay civil in light of the lawsuit?

    This sounds like it might be a simple story, but there are side plots and other interesting characters as well. I thought the story was well written and very interesting. It is written with enough but not too much description and, in my opinion, smartly written as well. It definitely made me want to read the first one and, even better, I found a new author I like!

    This story caught my attention from the first and kept me engrossed until the last line. This is the first story I've read by Jennifer Delamare, but I'm sure it won't be the last. Although there is a prior book in this series, it can be read as a stand-alone.

    Set against the backdrop of London, England in 1881, this book is rich in historical detail and replete with masterfully created characters that are realistic and engaging. Julia Bernay, the heroine, is a strong, independent, and courageously determined young lady pursuing her dream of becoming a doctor in a society that is not very supportive of women doctors. Michael Stephenson has worked hard, against the odds, to become a successful lawyer. When these two collide--quite literally--it creates an interesting friendship.

    Woven expertly throughout the story is a message of hope, trust in God, and faith in his loving care and concern. I would recommend this to those who enjoy clean, Christian historical fiction. I'm looking forward to the next book in this series.

    I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy from the publisher. All opinions are my own.

    Julia Bernay is pursuing her dream of becoming a doctor, but she has a few challenging classes that she must pass. Julia rushes to help when a man is injured in an underground accident, when she goes to check on him after saving his life, she asks him to help her with latin.

    Michael Stephenson is a barrister, is sister wants him to marry within his class and station, but he can't forget about the fiercely independent woman who stole his heart and saved is life. Michael is also working on a case of libel against the London School of Medicine for Women by the powerful Earl of Westbridge, who wants to shut down the school his daughter Edith Morton attends.

    Even though they are opposite sides of the case, Michael is drawn to Julia, does their love have a chance?

    Michael and his sister grew up within society's sphere, but when their father lost their money, is sister, Corinna, married a wealthy man to save their family, and it afforded his the opportunity to go to school and become a lawyer.

    Michael admires Julia so much, he's never met a woman like her before, so in love with learning, with a natural instinct about people. He likes her straightforward attitude, and how she doesn't care a fig for his money or his money, she has a passion for truly helping people. But will Michael and Julia's growing friendship put his whole career on the line, as well as his family's social standing?

    Overall, this is a fantastic read, with great characters, and a compelling story. Julia is a inspiring heroine, she has a passion for her work and for learning, I love how she wants to serve others with her gifts and knowledge, she is direct and knows how to get things done. I really liked how Michael takes a second look at his life and faith over the course of the book. David, Corinna's husband is a wonderful man, full of grace and patience. My favorite book of the series so far, I read the first book in the series and enjoyed it, but this sequel is utterly fantastic!
